AFCON: Super Eagles Mark Angola Win With Sam Okwaraji Memorial

The Super Eagles star died playing for the country at the National Stadium in Surulere, Lagos in 1989.

Okwaraji slumped and died on August 12, 1989, during an Italia ’90 World Cup qualifier against Angola.

“Today’s victory over Angola is a poignant reminder of the adamant spirit of Nigerian football. 🇳🇬⚽️ As we celebrate this triumph, we also honor the memory of Late Samuel Sochukwuma Okwaraji, who tragically left us while playing against Angola 35 years ago. His passion for the game and sacrifice will never be forgotten. Rest in peace, Samuel Okwaraji, your legacy lives on. #WeRememberOkwaraji #RIP”
